Apple Crumble Muffins

I generally don't bake on weekdays, mainly due to lack of time. But as I was feeling a little guilty that my poor beloved had been going hungry during the day, I decided to whip up a batch of muffins. They could have done with a little more cinnamon, but overall they were quite nice.

Apple Cinnamon Muffins
300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
150g (1 cup) plain flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
400g can pie apple, coarsely chopped
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
375ml (1½ cups) milk
190ml (¾ cup) oil

Crumble Topping
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/4 dessicated coconut
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup rolled oats
70g butter, melted

Grease 16 holes of 2 x 12 hole (1/3 cup capacity) muffin pans. Sift dry ingredients into bowl, stir in apple and sugar, then combined eggs, milk and oil; do not over-mix, batter should be lumpy. Spoon mixture into pans. Sprinkle muffins with the crumble topping.

Bake at 200°C for about 20 minutes or until browned and firm. Stand 2 minutes, remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

Topping - Combine all ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to stir. Add more melted butter if the mixture is too dry.
